Frescobaldi Castello Nipozzano Mormoreto 2015 - Wine

Tasting Notes

An intense ruby colour leads to aromas of blueberry and raspberry are followed by black jasmine tea, toasted coffee bean and a light touch of vanilla. A complex, persistent and balanced with rich and velvety tannins and balancing freshness through to a long, elegant finish.

Production Notes

The grapes were hand-harvested and then softly pressed. Each variety was vinified separately. Fermentation took place over 15 days in stainless steel tanks at less than 35°C. Maceration lasted for 20 days, with malolactic fermentation taking place in barriques immediately following alcoholic fermentation. The wine was aged for 24 months in hand-split oak barrels that were new and partly once-used, before being cellared for six months in bottle.

Critics Reviews

Vinous 94pts (2015) - The 2015 Mormoreto, Nipozzano's Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend, is another terrific wine in this range. Aromatically expressive, pliant and inviting, the 2015 is laced with an enticing array of dark fruit, spice and savory flavors. I very much like the sense of freshness here. The 2015 has it all going on. It is also one of the most complete wines I have tasted from Nipozzano in some time.

Producer Profile

Tradition, innate elegance and the essence of the Renaissance: Tuscany exudes an aura of timelessness that has inspired generations of the Frescobaldi family and is now an integral part of their vineyards. The Nipozzano Estate is located in one of the traditional areas of Chianti: Chianti Rufina, which is the smallest and most elevated Chianti sub-appellation. The 11th century castle is located in the heart of the prestigious Chianti Rufina, which holds the family cellar including wines dating back to 1864. The uniqueness of the Nipozzano terroir continues to produce wines with a wide range of aromas and extraordinary longevity.
